School me on water pumps

So I noticed the truck has a small puddle of water/coolant on the ground and some coolant splatter that's dried white on the inside of my hood. Pretty sure this sounds like a water pump but wanted your opinion before I buy anything. I also wanted to know what happens if you overfill your degas, is that what causes the weep hole to start leaking? Also I've read through the how to on how to replace the water pump and it seems unnecessary to remove the radiator, or am I wrong? I'm debating getting the bpd pump or the diesel site pump, input on both would be appreciated. Anything else I should do while I'm in there? I'm going to do blue spring update, new belt, and flush then refill with ELC. Thanks for any and all input

Sounds like you overfilled your degas bottle and it puked. (A bad water pump wouldn't cause white residue on your hood, but a decent amount of puking out the degas cap could.)

There's no puking from the cap, no white residue or nothin. Didn't drive the truck for a day and it still drips a drop once every 10 seconds roughly. Whole bunch of white residue on the axle and some on the factory stabilizer

Well, THAT does sound like a water pump. I'm running the BPD water pump, so that's what I would recommend, but I don't have any experience with the DieselSite water pump nor have I heard from anyone who is running one.

Kinda what I was thinking...
So does the radiator absolutely have to be removed? And once I put the fan clutch back on, how tight do I go with it?

Thanks so far fellas

Once you have lifted the rear half of the fan shroud and fan/clutch out at once changing out the water pump is super easy. Just take the top rad bolts out so it can be moved just a touch. I'd check the steel tube that supplies the heater core where it attaches to the front cover, seen it leak at that O-ring a couple times. Don't forget to disconnect the fan clutch wiring harness.
